That is correct Sunita.  Now that we've explored the mismatches, I thought it appropriate to start quantifying the level of the spurs caused by these mismatches.

Re : Interleaving Spurs: Letís Look at the Math
There are several challenges to look out for while interleaving ADCs.  Spurs appear in the output band that outcomes from the inadequacies related with inter leaving ADCs.  The deficiencies are essentially misalliances between the 2 ADCs that are interleaved.  There are 4 elementary misalliances that outcome in spurs in the production of band.  These are gain mismatch, offset mismatch bandwidth mismatch and timing mismatch.

Before looking into the signal chain portion of the tool we began by looking at the calculator tool available in ADIsimRF.
The topic of this blog came up while at the IMS show and one of my colleagues mentioned that I should discuss the ADIsimRF tool as a part of the series. I thought this was a marvelous idea. Iíll have to precursor this discussion with the fact that I am actually an RF guy from my previous employment at an RF company which was my first position when I graduated from college.
One of the questions that appeared on one of the IMS blog posts was about the details of the demonstration I had set up at the Analog Devices booth.
The last and final day of the show is usually has the most relaxed atmosphere and this year that proved to be the case once again. It is the shortest day of the show lasting from just 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
After having a pretty good first day of the show, I was looking forward to a good second day and it did not disappoint. The second day of the show on Wednesday is the longest day of the show as the exhibit hours go from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM (day one is 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and day three is 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM).
